Lalbagh Fort

It was built in 1678 A.D. by Prince Mohammad Azam, son of Mughal emperor Aurangazeb.  The fort was the scene of bloody battle during the first war of independence (1857) when 260 sepoys stationed here backed by the people revolted against British forces. 

 

Outstanding among the monuments of the Lelbagh are the tomb of Pari Bibi (Fairy lady), Lalbagh Mosque, Audience Hall and Hammam of Nawab Shaista Khan now housing a museum.


 

 

 

Kuakata

Kuakata, situated in the district of Patuakhali, is a wonderful picturesque spot. The 25 KM long sea beach situated at the periphery of the southern part of Patuakhali is a potential tourist resort. It provides aunique opportunity to witness both sun rise and sun set.

 

The local Rakhain population have rich cultural tradition and their hospitality is well known. The 200 acres dense forest gives the beach a pleasant look and it serves as a wall against tidal bore. A Buddhist pagoda is located at the sea-shore and a Buddhist statue weighing over 1.5 metric tons is preserved inside the Pagoda.
